There is a second generation of eggs in the pond tonight. There has been regular spotted marsh frog calls from the pond and it seems they have been busy. Somewhere underneath all the vegetation the first generation of tadpoles should all be growing too. We haven't had rain for a while but the calls have been ongoing.
The tadpoles we rescued from the dam continue to grow. We're looking forward to Jon (BCG) finishing his next survey so we can possibly release them into some other ponds - and reduce the population in glyphosate containers on the back verandah. At the moment they're being fed on frozen spinach, silver beet and broccoli leaves and seem quite happy but the water gets dirty quickly (there's lots of them). Love the flurry that happens when you disturb them eating. At night you can hear the frenzy going on!
